If you have senior family members who are suffering from mobility issues or memory problems, the best thing to do is to go for an assisted living facility. Being a resident of the Phoenix region in Arizona, you can book from the affordable suites at the acclaimed Anthem Senior Living where you can expect for your loved one to receive the best form of senior living in Anthem care and support in the hands of compassionate caregivers.

Now, the most important question in this regards is the fact that should you take your parents with you when you tour an assisted facility for the first time. The answer to that would be ‘YES’, if your loved one is happy and excited about this transition, he or she would be more than happy in touring each and every facility with you. It is of extreme importance that one tours each and every community prior to narrowing down the choices in order to zero in on the best one for a senior person.

A few factors that you should consider prior to taking your senior loved one on a tour of a facility are:

The Resistant Senior– Taking a senior person to visit facilities can be a bit risky especially if he or she is unwilling to make a move to assisted living. The community not being the right fit might just add to the problems as it may make it more difficult to convince a senior person to visit any more facilities. So, it is advisable that prior to taking your loved one, it is better that you first take a tour. You need to handle such situations efficiently.

Fear and Anxiety– Making a transition to a new place or an assisted living facility in this regards can become a matter of great fear for a senior person. The process of downsizing and moving can be overwhelming at any age, but it is all the more so for older adults who may have lived in their home for decades that can lead to high levels of anxiety thus leading to health deterioration. Moving becomes all the more difficult for people with dementia and taking them along with you in touring facilities may increase agitation and confusion on their part. So, it is better that you just leave them behind and visit the facilities on your own. After you zero down on some of the facilities, visit those again with your loved one.

Physical Abilities– Limiting tours to a number of assisted living facilities on the part of your senior family members might be the best approach if your parents or grandparents are suffering from mobility or memory issues. Contrarily, if your beloved is really looking forward to this transition, they might enjoy the opportunity to tag along with you in your tour of each facility. A senior might also feel empowered after meeting a few residents or the caregivers and staff at the place.
